“beautiful garbage can”


“Luxury super high rise tower apartment” born from “beautiful garbage can”

Built in Manhattan, the 89-story luxury tower apartment “432 Park Avenue”. It was the “beautiful garbage can” by famous designers at the beginning of the 20th century that became the source of that inspiration by the architect Rafael Viñoly.

There are many magical things in inspiration, but this can be said to be particularly funny example. As the residential building, the appearance of a new luxurious selling tower apartment “432 Park Avenue”, which is the highest in the Western Hemisphere, is inspired by the “trash can”.

A height of 426.1 m, 89 stories of 432 Park Avenue enters the skyscraper genre with 425.5 m 1 World Trade Center and Dubai’s Burj Khalifa over 800 m in height.

Although it is thought from the garbage box, it is not a plastic trash box that rats go in and out. It is an elegant metal garbage box by designer and architect Joseph Hoffmann who presided over the “Vienna Factory” founded in 1903 and is currently sold for a retail price of 225 dollars

432 Architect Rafael Vinioli, who was in charge of designing Park Avenue, was a lecture in February 2014, with 432 Park Avenue being “a lot inspired” from various things, especially Hofmann I talked about the appearance that looks like a grid from the work of. Also, by making the appearance lattice-like, he says, “the whole gives a uniform impression,” he says.

It can be thought that a luxurious tower apartment was designed inspired by garbage boxes as a failure in PR activities, but that is not the case. It shows that inspiration really comes from everywhere.
